Crowns are caps that fit over the top of natural teeth that are damaged or decaying. Dental crowns are the same color, shape, size, and overall appearance as your natural teeth, so they blend in perfectly with the surrounding teeth. Implant-supported crowns are artificial teeth that attach to metal tooth roots to replace missing permanent teeth.
Your dentist might recommend a crown if you have teeth that are:
Crowns can improve the structure, function, color, and overall appearance of your natural teeth. They’re strong, long-lasting, and natural-looking.
Because RR Dentistry providers offer same-day CEREC crowns, you don’t have to schedule a second dental visit to receive your crown.
To find out if same-day CEREC crowns are right for you, your dentist discusses your symptoms, oral health history, and desired outcome with you. They examine your teeth and gums and take dental X-rays if needed before personalizing a restorative dental treatment that’s best for you.
During the first step of getting a crown, your dentist prepares your tooth. They remove any decay and may reshape your tooth to ensure your crown fits over the top perfectly.
Your dentist then digitally scans your teeth and develops a custom-fitted crown right in the office, using cutting-edge CEREC technology. When your new crown is ready, your dentist bonds it over your natural tooth and ensures it fits properly and comfortably.
Implant-supported crowns require more than one dental visit. During the first appointment, your dentist surgically places a metal post (dental implant) into your jawbone and allows a period of time for your bone to heal around the implant. They then attach a connector post to each implant and develop tailor-made crowns that bond to them to replace missing permanent teeth.
After you receive a new crown, there’s no downtime. You can get back to your normal routine immediately, but call the RR Dentristry office if your crown falls off or gets damaged. Take good care of it by not chewing on hard objects, flossing daily, and brushing your teeth after meals. See the dental experts at RR Dentistry every six months for dental cleanings and exams.
